FT. LAUDERDALE, FL—February 13, 2014 - RealBiz Media Group, Inc. (OTCQB: RBIZ), a real estate digital media and technology company, today announced the company's upcoming enhancement of nestbuilder.com with a mobile app version, actively engaging real estate agents to increase their marketing outreach in their communities across multiple platforms. The initial version of the video app, which will be completed by the end of February, will be available to agents on Google Play upon its acceptance to the app store by Google, with an iOS version to follow.
The video listing app will focus on the consumer experience of nestbuilder.com, allowing users to search for video listings and save favorites to their myNest profile. Selections will synchronize with their nestbuilder.com account. The subsequent agent mobile app will empower agents to enhance their listing videos and infuse local community information via agent-captured and narrated video. The agents can make videos, edit them, and distribute to their client bases with existing mobile technology, via nestbuilder.com, in real time.
The agent mobile app will allow agents to add pictures and video to existing listings, re-arrange their order, add text descriptions and re-process the newly updated information into a finished video that resides on the nestbuilder.com website. The app also allows agents to add cameo video clips, walking video property tours as well as videos on local community highlights that help consumers better understand the value of the property. This will add a strong personal aspect to the agent-client relationship, reinforcing each agent's unique personal brand.
The site expects to showcase over one million homes in video format by the end of March. The addition of the app contributes to the continued adoption of nestbuilder.com marketing programs by agents and brokers. It will also offer features that allow agents to interact with the public, clients and other agents via social media platforms. "The most exciting facet of nestbuilder.com is the Social Agent tools, which will enhance the overall relationship-building and communication access available to real estate professionals and people interested in 'everything home,' including home sales and purchases. With this technology, people will be able to share property details, and home news in real time. Providing tools such as this, alongside interesting and unique local content, assist agents in developing long-term relationships with their clients," said Steve Marques, CRO of RealBiz Media Group.
